Summer is just around the corner, and we know it’s not an easy season for those of us who suffer from Hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating of the body. Sweating is a normal body mechanism which happens so as to keep the best possible body temperature.
When the sweating becomes excessive, it brings with it a whole lot of issues. For starters, excessive sweating does not have any scientifically proven cause, but it is related to overactive stimulation of the sweat glands caused by the central nervous system over activity. The other form of Hyperhidrosis comes about as a result of underlying mental issues. It is very important to differentiate the type of excessive sweating you suffer from, before you seek laser treatment.
People who suffer from this condition mostly sweat from the underarms, also known as axillary Hyperhidrosis, Feet (plantar Hyperhidrosis), hands (palmar Hyperhidrosis) and face (facial Hyperhidrosis).
Hyperhidrosis of the underarms can affect a person’s way of life, including their self confidence, work, social and emotional well-being and most of all, their choice of what to wear on a daily basis. Research has shown that less than 40% of Hyperhidrosis sufferers only seek help from a specialist, because most people facing this excessive sweating condition are not aware that this can be treated.
